HILLARY’S EXPERIENCE VERSUS OBAMA’S EXPERIENCE ?

We can argue, ad nauseum, about whose experience is more impressive. Basically we are comparing apples and oranges.

What really counts is the judgement and to a lesser extent, the knowledge that comes from that experience.

Let us compare one huge issue that both Hillary and Obama weighed in on. As a result of Hillary’s experience, how good was her knowledge and judgement ?

Hillary has said ” If I knew than what I knew now, I would not have voted for the war.

Consider what Barack Obama “knew then” in October 2002 when he said

” I know that even a successful war against Iraq will require a US occupation of undetermined length, at undetermined cost, with undetermined consequences. I know that an invasion of Iraq without a clear rationale and without strong international support will only fan the flames of the Middle East, and encourage the worst, rather than best, impulses of the Arab world, and strengthen the recruitment arm of al-Qaeda.

I am not opposed to all wars. I’m opposed to dumb wars.”

Whatever experience Obama had, it resulted in more meaningful knowledge and judgement than Hillary had when it came time to make the decision about invading Iraq.

The number of years of experience does not automatically guarantee rigidly proportional acquisition of knowledge and judgement. It is not the only consideration. There is a difference between 20 years of experience and one year of experience 20 times.
